About this teaching resource
This is a professional reading resource called The Usefulness of Onsets and Rimes When Reading and Writing,
Using Onsets and Rimes When Reading and Writing has three main purposes:
- To make it easier for children to read and write many words, especially when they are learning how to read and write, usually during the first two years at school.
- To help children to read and write words using a strategy that does not rely on only identifying a sound (phoneme) for each letter and not only looking at the beginning of the word first when reading a word. E.g. For a word such as lay it would be difficult for a child to read or write it correctly if the only strategy is to ‘sound out’ each letter, starting at the beginning of the word.
- To help children to realise that they can use words they know how to read and/or spell to help them figure out how to read and/or spell other words that are similar in some way. (This is a broad goal related to many reading and spelling activities, so that children learn to be strategic in reading and writing words by applying known information to unfamiliar words.)
The resource includes:
• Background information
It is designed for teachers and parents
This work should result in children reading and writing more independently and successfully, and therefore with greater fluency and enjoyment.
